Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Testing

Comprehensive EMC testing capabilities

Let Us Help You Meet the Regulatory EMC Requirements

EMC testing measures the ability of equipment or systems to function satisfactorily in their electromagnetic environment without introducing intolerable electromagnetic disturbance to anything in that environment.

EMC certifications are a mandatory requirement in most markets, including Europe (EMC Directive 2014/30/EU), the US, China, Korea, Australia and New Zealand. EMC testing is necessary to help you meet regulatory requirements, improve product performance and reduce the risk of costly non-compliance. A third-party EMC test lab can conduct conformity assessments and also help to strengthen your competitive position in the market.

one-stop service for EMC testing and certification

TÜV SÜD's experts offer comprehensive testing and certification based on their complete knowledge of EMC legislation, guidelines, and standards. Our EMC testing can cover all types of products, from small appliances to large aerospace/defense industry machines, automotive and medical devices.

We assist you to resolve any EMC regulatory issues, from design concept to final production. We provide a one-stop service that covers all your testing and certification needs. Our experts provide project management to ensure that the EMC testing runs smoothly.

You can choose to have tests performed at our labs, on your premises, or anywhere your product is installed.

EMC testing procedure

Our worldwide labs are capable of conducting a comprehensive range of EMC tests and providing you with EMC certifications. Depending on your product, this might include:

  • Antenna immunity to RF voltage
  • Antenna input immunity
  • Antenna screening effectiveness
  • Conducted disturbances immunity
  • Conducted emissions (continuous and discontinuous interference)
  • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) immunity
  • Electrical disturbances from conduction and coupling immunity for vehicles
  • Electrical fast transient / burst immunity
  • Harmonic current emission
  • Harmonics and interharmonics immunity
  • Immunity from radiated fields
  • Immunity to induced voltages
  • On-Site (In-Situ) EMC testing
  • Power frequency magnetic field / oscillatory waves immunity
  • Power interference
  • Power supply conditioning
  • Radiated emissions
  • Radiated field immunity
  • Voltage fluctuation/flicker
  • Voltage surge immunity
  • Voltage dips/interruptions immunity
  • Magnetic filed measurement (EMF)
  • Electric field measurement (EMF)
  • Electromagnetic field measurement (EMF)
  • Induced current density due to the electric field (EMF for lightning equipment)

Acceptance of Client Testing (A.C.T.) Program

The TÜV SÜD A.C.T. program authorizes a manufacturer to perform their own product safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and/or ENERGY STAR® testing at their facility, with the test results reviewed and approved by TÜV SÜD America’s expert engineers prior to the product’s certification.
